Last time I promised you something ‘sexy’ for the next show.
Now…’sexy’ can mean a lot of things — exotic, erotic, intense, dangerous, and yes…even pornographic.
So, if I’m gonna to go for the gold star and circle all of the above on this multiple choice test? Then I’ll do it with this sordid, scary, and downright scandalous tale of one unbelievable night and morning in Vientiane - the communist capital of Laos - that I will never, ever forget.
Hunker down, kids, and smoke ‘em if you get ‘em…this is Sexy Storytime…on Buddha and the Slut (NSFW)
When you’ve been living out a backpack for long enough, pinching those pennies or euros or baht or crowns or dong, you eventually find that magical spot you want to call ‘home’ for more than a month. Someplace that clicks with your inherent cultural sensibilities. You know the deal. Good weather. Great food. Hot girls. Fast internet. Mostly avoidable plagues and crime. Sand, sun, and surf. And, god willing, all of it on the Cheap.
Tall order, you say? Not so much. These places ain’t just in Alex Garland novels that get turned into Danny Boyle movies that ironically star A-list environmentalists while destroying the host ecosystem.
They do exist.
The problem isn’t finding them, my friends…
It’s staying in them.
